I Wish (Good To Grow mix) - (5:49) 132 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
   
I Wish (Hoops For Ballers mix) - (4:37) 128 BPM
Review: Actual Phantom deliver two huge breakbeat monsters on Actual Sounds. Sampling Skee Lo?s "I Wish" the two tracks pulsate and bang to the anthemic lyrics of the original. The Good to Grow mix combines big breaks with the classic hook before throwing in some breakbeat madness. The Hoops for Ballers remix sees faster beats and dirtier bass mixing with rolling drums.

Review: Premium booty-busters Actual Sounds unleash their mysterious in-house reversionista for this staggering 35 track compendium. Oozing references that sing back to dance music's most formative funky days, across the collection we're treated to versions of every possible dancefloor fave. From the bass-belching breakbeat take on Goldie's "Inner City Life" to the swinging filtered funk flex of Michael Jackson's "Off The Wall" via a roof-demolishing rip off Baby D's "Let Me Be Your Fantasy" Actual Phantom has a repertoire that will make all music lovers smile with both nostalgia and total hedonism. Bootlegs are ten a penny in this game, but few are crafted and packaged with as much care and attention as this.

I Need Your Lovin' - (6:38) 136 BPM
   
You Don't Love Me - (5:58) 129 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
Review: Actual Phantom - disappointingly not an actual phantom (we checked) - makes the sort of bootleg breaks mash-ups that come with a mile-wide grin and basslines that could fell a herd of cows at 50 paces. There's little subtle about either of the tracks here, but both will send breaks dancefloors - not usually known for their love of the intricacies of electronic music - into arm-waving raptures. "I Need Your Lovin" cheekily uses vocal samples from a familiar old MOR classic ("Everybody Needs Somebody Sometimes"). The fact that it works is a thrilling surprise. "You Don't Love Me", meanwhile, is a skanking assault on the head, hips and feet.

Review: Four of Actual Sounds' most accomplished bootlegateers unleash their best blends for this exclusive four-tracker. Party insanity is guaranteed from the off: "Ice In Outer Space" fuses The Prodigy with Ice T, "Muppet Funk" takes the Animal's classic solo piece "Mahna Mahna" and charges it with a cool funk break, "The Real Ritz" grabs Eminem and flips him back to 1920s prohibition US while "Regulate The Dogg" closes the show with a very smooth marriage of "Drop It Like It's Hot" and Nate Dogg and Warren G's "Regulate". Seriously fruity funk: Each one is a peach.

Review: 32 tracks heavy, Actual Sounds have curated the ultimate booty breaks package right here. Each and every rub is a highlight, taking influence and sample inspiration from the '50s onwards. From the Little Richard-sampling "Tooty Frooty" to Big Bang Breaks' super-sexy take on Khia's naughty "My Neck My Back" ("Pussy Popper"), no genre or decade is left un-plundered. Taking things bang up to date, there's even a respectable bootleg of "Get Lucky" courtesy of Actual Phantom. Exclusive to Juno, this truly is an insane party package.

Review: One of the most successfully prolific bootleg dealers on the nu-funk scene, Actual Sounds celebrate half a decade of dancefloor hell raising with this epic 40-track compendium that showcases their most talented artists and most bolshy of booties. If you've not had the pleasure of making the label's acquaintance yet, now is most certainly the time. From slamming up-tempo rip-ups such as Actual Phantom's insane "Fat Eric" to slinkier, sleazier jams such as Funk In A Can's killer electro blend of Luniz "I Got 5 On It" Actual Sounds understand all members of the dancefloor from moody rudeboy to a laser-loving raver. Booties don't come with much more distinction than this; here's to another five years.

Played by: Actual Sounds
Review: The Artist Series Volume 1 sees Actual Sounds gather together a bunch of their artists to provide an expansive selection of bootleg breaks, ghetto funk and jungle reworks of tracks from well-known artists, namely Stevie Wonder, The Beatles, The Beastie Boys and Cypress Hill. While there's a certain drunken office Christmas party silliness to the Fab Four reworks, the more hip-hop inclined reworks are much more successful. There are plenty of confirmed party-starters, from the synth-heavy P-funk breaks of Funky Wah Wah's "Beastie Noise (That's Resin Funk)", to Big Bang Breaks' multiple reworks of "Insane In The Brain" (the first of which, a straight-up party hip-hop take, is the bomb).

Review: Big booty business: Actual Sounds cherry picks 20 favourites from 2014's audio assault with party-priming results. A great opportunity to fill the gaps in your collection; highlights hang mischievously from every corner like groove Gremlins from Altered Grooves' monster-mashing "Muppet Funk" to Big Bang Breaks hip-hop homage "Regulate The Dogg" to Actual Phantom's essential montage soundtrack "Fly Tiger". From Rocky to straight-up block rocking, this is testament to Actual Sounds' dedication to edit craft.
